Synthesis and Properties of Polycarbosilanes Having Lactose‐Derived Structures

A polycarbosilane having lactose‐derived structures (PSB‐Lac) was synthesized, and its cytotoxicity, chemical crosslinking, and thermal and protein adsorption properties were investigated. PSB‐Lac had no significant cytotoxicity, which was evaluated by human liver cancer cell line HepG2 cultivation. The crosslinked PSB‐Lac showed higher adsorption of...

Preparation of Liquid Crystal Film Capable of Shielding Visible Light Band by Two‐Phase Coexistence

Liquid crystal films capable of shielding visible light band are prepared by building the coexistence of cholesteric and twist grain boundary A phase. Different structures in the system are fixed by photopolymerization of polymerizable monomers, and the reflection band is broadened. The non‐uniform distribution of pitch in the thickness direction of...

A Novel Conjugated Polymer Consists of Benzimidazole and Benzothiadiazole: Synthesis, Photophysics Properties, and Sensing Properties for Pd2+

A novel conjugated polymer PPBIBTE containing benzimidazole and benzothiadiazole units was synthesized and applied in fluorescence chemosensor. PPBIBTE shows high sensitivity for Pd2+ among various metal ions, using the Stern–Volmer equation, Benesi‐Hildebrand plots, and Job's method to demonstrate that PPBIBTE can utilize static quenching for Pd2+...

Confined crystallization, melting behavior and morphology in PEG‐b‐PLA diblock copolymers: Amorphous versus crystalline PLA

Crystallization kinetics, crystalline structure, melting behaviors of PEG blocks, and morphology development of PEG‐b‐PDLLA and PEG‐b‐PLLA were investigated. Compared to those connected to PLLA, PEG‐b‐PDLLA exhibited lower crystallization rates. The PEG‐b‐PDLLA showed a single endothermic peak during the heating process, while multiple melting peaks...

Investigation of segmental reorganization within amphiphilic block polymer nanoparticles derived from shell crosslinked micelle templates: Shell crosslinked knedel‐like inversion

Fundamental studies of the potential for dynamic reorganization within established polymer nanoparticle frameworks offer opportunities to access unique structures, morphologies and properties. These possibilities are described for amphiphilic shell crosslinked polymer micelles undergoing an inversion process. ABSTRACT The construction of nanoscopic...

Synthesis and biological characterization of clicked chloroquine copolymers as macromolecular inhibitors of cancer cell migration

Nondegradable CQ‐containing HPMA copolymers are synthesized by click chemistry and RAFT polymerization as polymeric drugs. These copolymers exhibit improved inhibition of breast cancer cell migration compared to hydroxychloroquine. The novel alkyne‐containing methacrylamide can be used as a universal precursor for polymer modification by click chemistry....

Acyl guanidine functional poly(2‐oxazoline)s as reactive intermediates and stimuli‐responsive materials

Within this work, the synthesis and isolation of acyl guanidine functional poly(2‐oxazoline)s is described, starting from methyl ester functional poly(2‐oxazoline)s. The synthesized structures were subsequently applied as a reactant in the formation of acyl‐2‐imidazole functional poly(2‐oxazoline)s. The polymers displayed both temperature and pH‐responsive...
